    Welcome to the Steeler Nation ! We have so many fans all over the whole country! No matter where the games are held, the stands are half-filled with Steeler fans and Terrible Towels! All the announcers are just amazed and I just love it! Does my heart good.

    I'm so glad so many women are sports fans, 'specially football!

I learned to understand the game and I have been a fan ever since. Later, my husband thought it was really neat that I knew the game. Of course, as fate would have it, I ended up marrying a Pitt man, so every Saturday we had a war at our house!

    My dad's enthusiasm for pro football rubbed off on me and, needless to say, I always have been and still am the biggest, most avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan. I get very emotional about the Steelers and, even though I live alone now, I never miss a game on TV, and I holler and cheer and pound the furniture and jump up and down and curse and cry and just get SO excited - all by myself! As much as I love sewing and quilting, it all has to wait until after the game!
    Hey fellow "burger"!!! I absolutely love the Steelers!!!!
    I get dressed in Steeler gear and yell and scream and pound furniture too! Have been to a few games in my life and that is just so intense and wonderful. Pgh. has the greatest fans in the world!!
    We sure do! Isn't it great to be part of it? Win or lose, there's nothin' better than our "Stillers", right?

    I am a huge Nottingham Forest fan, though DH is also a big, big Penn State fan - he got his BS, MS and PhD there. F1 is the other big sport in our household, and we regularly get up at 4.30 am to watch the European races.

    Being from Wisconsin originally ... who else, but the Packers?
    But over the years, am addicted to most all Sunday, Sunday night, Monday and
    Thursday night games. Love the athleticism and grace in some of the
    passing/catches... almost like ballet.

    I sew in the room with my guys. If the tension gets intense on tv, I have to stop sewing for a minute, then it's back to sewing. I enjoy football (all sports really) and the guys don't mind the sewing machine sound. My hubby or son just turns up the volume! :)

    I love football and baseball. I'm from Missouri so I watch the Chiefs who lost in OT yesterday and sometimes the Rams. I now have to watch Dancing with the Stars since Kurt Warner is on - he is the QB who won the Super Bowl for the Rams a few years ago (or many years ago). My sewing machine sits downstairs with a TV close by. Love it.

    That's about it for me -- except it didn't make a "fan" out of me. When DD hung up her flute and baton and DS hung up is drumsticks, I quit going to football games. Then when DGS started playing, I thought I'd give it another try, but that didn't work. I just couldn't see my "baby" getting knocked around like that. So no more football games for me. Occasionally I'll "watch" (be in the same room) a Saints or LSU game, but mostly I go to the sewing room or nextdoor to visit my mom.

    I do love ice skating and events like the Olympics.

    Yeah, I'm a football fan! Love it (Hockey 2nd - Red Wings Rule!). The Detroit Lions record isn't great -- won only 2 games last year and won only 2 so far this year. Someday they might win more than they lose.

    Don't lose hope. Keep the faith. Look at what the Saints did last year.

    Love the OSU Buckeyes!!!

    Love Big 10 Football!!! (except for Michigan!! ;-))

    I enjoy all college football.

    Pro football - I can watch. I can enjoy. But I don't go out of my way to watch. Way too much $$$$$ wasted on most pro sports.


    Go BUCKS!!!!!

    We live for football season at our house. My husband doesn't claim any team, but doesn't have a problem stating what a player did right or wrong!! My son-in-law is a Detroit Lions fan. I am so glad that at least they have won some games, finally!! My daughter is a true and true Chicago Bears fan! I have several: Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Indy Colts, and Pittsburgh Steelers!! (At least, some team usually wins on Sunday!!) We, also, enjoy college football as well as High School. What did I say - We LIVE for football! Since I do not like hand applique, I am cross stitching during the games.

    I closed down my cable many years ago, about 6 or 7. Always figured that if I missed it I could start it again. I watch a few movies a year, or music or something that we've recorded that I have on video or CDs. Watching some on the Computer is enough for me. There are places where you can find old TV programs you can watch, but I don't often enough so that I remember how to find them.
